Uplifting novel “Ebenezer” features lesbian’s (secular) spiritual journey learning to fight severe depression

(Before I start this, I want to mention that the Kindle sample is what hooked me, and that close toward the end of the sample there was something that caught me by complete surprise, bringing tears to my eyes. So maybe that’s all I really need to write — go read the sample.)

There are books and movies out there where we get to watch someone fight an illness, return to their roots, rekindle

Lovely, charming take on a classic.

I blazed through this after the sample pages dragged me in. I got it off a recommendation from a Twitter follower and wasn't sure what to expect. What a surprise when this turned out to be a lovely story, even if I'm reading it mid August. I'm 30 and really quite not straight, much like Ebenezer. I related to the hardships she went through, and loved the spirits of the past, present, and future. The imagery in this was wonderful, just enough without being overk

As someone who reads A Christmas Carol pretty much every year around Christmas time, when I heard about this modern-day, lesbian re-telling of the book I knew I had to read it. After opening it this morning, I found it hard to put it down again, so needless to say, it didn't disappoint. Ebenezer sort of felt like Dickens with a Rivers of London vibe, if that makes sense, and the writing (though awkward in a couple of places) was beautiful. If you like your Christmas reading to be both queer and ...more

I enjoyed this book immensely! Basically because of the author's writing skills: " The cab slushed along the roads; the snow drifted down like dandelion seeds." And "Tim's voice was gray and hollow as a cracked bell. Happily or not, it toiled on brokenly." Sometimes, I just stopped reading to go back and reread the descriptive words. This is a Dickens's tale retold so that the children and younger generations can really apply it to themselves today in a way that may mean more to them than the or ...more

The back of the book says Contemporary Women. As I'm a man, I was not what you would call a core audience for the book. Nevertheless the book was beautifully written and I enjoyed reading it. The book was easy to read and, for a Finn, also easy to understand with not much difficult words. Writers usage of metaphores was also beautiful. I usually enjoy books with a stronger plot. Well written book, but plotwise not exactly for me.
